Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Your top three shows?

Totally agree w.JodyC's assessment (esp. his nod to my fave 10/29/77 show ;-), esp. since so many great songs (the whole of Blues for Allah, terrapin, etc.) simply weren't available pre '72...

But i also really appreciate William Tell's passion for the late 60's Dead sound b/c without his dogged insistence of that era I would never have discovered, for example, my all-time favorite Dark Star of 10/25/69

and many other shows from that era I tend to bypass.

I depend on this forum for exactly those diverse opinions and enthusiasms for different eras, and applaud each and all's efforts to champion them.
